NBA Summer League returns to Las Vegas

The NBA Summer League is returning to the Mojave desert as the University of Las Vegas hosts the event July 13-22.

The League began in 2004 with just the Celtics, Cavaliers, Nuggets, Magic, Suns, and Wizards participating. But since the NBA jumped on board in 2007, the event has grown immensely.

Ten of the top 14 picks in the 2010 draft competed in the 58-game schedule, featuring up-and-coming players, such as the Knicks' Jeremy Lin. Fans that missed the excitement two summers ago can catch all the action on NBA TV or by logging on to NBA.com.

Tickets for the Summer League will go on sale June 1 at 10 a.m. The final schedule of this year's events will be released on a later date.

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

The Denver Nuggets have been hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games against pretty stiff competition. However, they were no match in a tough virtual matchup on Friday night. 

CSN Chicago associate producer Adam Yingst took on Nikola Jokic and company in #MeVsNuggets, a challenge in which the person watching must eat more chicken nuggets than Denver has field goals. 

Fighting a cold, Yingst powered through 41 chicken nuggets to seal the victory over Denver. If that isn't reminiscent of the Michael Jordan flu game, then we don't know what is. 

Watch this epic battle in the video above, and catch some funny outtakes below.
